Minor League Recaps: 7/18

Richmond 3, Buffalo 11 (In Progress)

  • S. Thorman 2-4 HR(17)
  • A. Lerew 1.2IP 2H 0R 1BB 1K

I doubt that I'm going to come back and update this game because I'm tired and this looks out of hand. Now the big thing here for me is obviously Anthony Lerew. I was a big fan of Lerew when he was healthy a couple years ago and then he went and got himself hurt. I don't know what the Braves plans for him are (starting or relief - he was trying to be a closer when he went down) but I have always liked him starting and he has a good arm with a couple of solid pitches.

Carolina 3, Mississippi 2

  • M. Young 1-4 2B, RBI
  • T. Redmond 8IP 1H 0R 2BB 6K

Crafty RIGHT handed pitcher Todd Redmond got hosed in his best start of the season. If I go out and throw 8 innings of 1 hit ball I expect a freaking win. Nope, not today Todd. Not today. Luis Valdez blew his 6th save of the season. Honestly. Todd is having one of the most consistent seasons in the Braves system and has been pretty darn good since we got him from Pittsburgh for some guy named Yates. Honestly I think we got a steal.

Myrtle Beach 9, Winston-Salem 6

  • G. Hernandez 1-4 2B, RBI, 2 BB
  • W. Cabrera 2-3 HR(10), 2 RBI, 3 BB
  • E. Campbell 2-5, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K, CS(1)
  • T. Flowers 2-5 3 K
  • T. Jones 2-3 2B, RBI, 2 BB

The Pelicans did a good job of padding their walks tonight with 9 total. I have been a little encouraged by Eric Campbell's steadily rising batting average. His OPS is over .800 for instance which honestly surprised me a bit. I don't what the Braves will eventually do with him but I think you'll see him in a major league uni in the next couple of years.

Rome 3, Lexington 5

  • F. Freeman 2-5 K
  • C. Johnson 0-4 4 K
  • J. Locke 5IP 7H 4R 1BB 5K

Freddie Freeman's hitting streak is now at 17 games and counting and his AVG is up to .322. Jason Heyward made a pinch hitting appearance in this one but that was all. His AVG is sitting at .324. Don't get me wrong. Jason Heyward is the better prospect here, but these guys could be hitting 3-4 for us in a couple of years. I think Heyward has just gotten tired as the season has worn on.

Danville 2, Princeton 4

  • J. Gilmore 1-3 2B, K

Well there wasn't a whole lot going on here. All these doubles are going to turn into homers at some point for Jon Gilmore and he is going to be a beast. The young Australian lefty Steven Kent made an appearance in this game pitching 2.1 innings of scoreless ball.

Braves 3, Indians 3 - suspended
